The plasma rifles and flamers are for opposite purposes. However with the new shooting rule that wounds from the wound pool can be allocated any model within range of any one gun in the squad this effectively increases the number of models you can wound with your flamers. Plasma rifles my be the wrong weapon to use but they have been working out well for me. I may try burst cannons instead of plasma rifles for a better anti infantry squad. I do like fireknives (plasma rifle missile pod suits right?) but I like triple stacking flamers more. If I take bodyguards for my commander I would probably make them fireknives.

That means if you triple stack flamers on the first five guys in a twenty man squad an then shoot the unit with your plasma rifles the would from the flamers can be extended to models within range of the plasma rifles.
Edit: This does not change the range of your guns, they can still only shoot thing in range. So you can't flame a unit twelve inches away just because your plasma rifles can hit them.
